  4. We Are Moving!

    Just a note to let you know the shop is now shutdown until September, when we're set up at our new place. The exception are our used MAC instruments will still be available (have one you won't want to miss coming up soon).
    We'll miss the old school, but it's a bit big for us now, and we retain all of the memories of luthiers, players, vendors, dealers, and mandolins.

    So schedule your Mando's trip to 'The Mando Spa', as several of our players have taken to calling it, in the ...

  6. Mandolin Bridges

    I just saw this blog post we did- it's been a year (!) but the info is always timely.

    Any of the bridge issues below will rob your instrument of tone and volume and are responsible for more players going on a new string brand or gauge hunt because their instrument just doesnít sound like it used to.

    I know Iíve posted on this topic a few times before, however recently Bruce has gotten quite a few instruments in for miscellaneous work and noticed almost all had bridge ...

  9. Shipping Your Repair

    These days shipping can be a big expense. We've noticed Montana Lutherie's UPS costs often are quite a bit cheaper than individual shipping costs.
    We can email you the UPS shipping tag to tape on your box, and you can just drop it off at the local UPS center. Then, the expense will just be tacked on your repair cost.

    Be sure to ask us about this service, when getting your repair ready!

Also information on any Flatiron instruments prior to 1997 and Montana built Gibson mandolins. You can contact us through our Montana Lutherie web site, here on Mandolin cafe, or give me a call directly at 406-580-6053.
